5.  Fridays, 3:00pmEST - REENTRY
Discussions regarding the challenges and triumphs of released prisoners. Accepting applications for a new host, preferably someone who has endured incarceration and successfully reentered society or a corrections guard (past or present). We're looking for a new host for our "Reentry" show, preferably someone who was imprisoned or worked in a prison.

Johnny Strozier was incarcerated in Georgia prisons for 46 years, 15 of them in solitary confinement - from 1968 to 2013. He was initially arrested at age 6, when he and friends broke into an Atlanta warehouse to steal cigarettes for family members and candy. He was sentenced to juvenile detention at age 10 and transferred to an adult facility at age 16. His sentence was lengthened numerous times. Strozier's warden told him he would never exit prison alive. But Johnny did get paroled because he changed.

Hear Strozier's debut broadcast of June 3, 2014, archived at Blogtalkradio

6.  Saturdays at 3:00pm EST - RELEASE THE INNOCENT, hosted by Mary Neal
Saturday broadcasts do not air every week. If you know of an actually innocent person who is awaiting trial or has been sentenced, you are invited to contact Mary Neal to broadcast the situation. Call 678.531.0262 or email - Innocent people include defendants who were mentally ill at the time of the arrest.

Thousands of innocent people are released from incarceration every year. Most of them are released because they served their sentences. Between 5k and 10k people are wrongfully convicted each year. The Univ. of Mich. Law School Innocence Clinic says most wrongful convictions are caused by:
~Eyewitness Misidentification
~Junk Science
~False Confessions
~Government Misconduct
~Lying Snitches
~Bad Lawyering

The U.S. Supreme Court has NOT determined that actually innocent people have a right to have their post-conviction evidence considered by courts. We consider it on this show and make a human rights demand to release the innocent.

7.  Sundays at 3pm EST - HUMAN RIGHTS FOR PRISONERS MARCH, Mary Neal, host

~Advocacy for adequate defense, fair trials, drug courts, mental health courts, post-conviction DNA tests, safe and humane incarceration, and successful re-entry.

~Advocacy against prisoner abuse, avoidable deaths caused by police and correctional officers, solitary confinement, children tried and sentenced as adults, criminalizing mental illness, inadequate health care, wrongful convictions, law of parties, three-strikes law, enforced prison labor, and capital punishment.

BE OUR GUEST ~ Guests include people who have experienced, or who have specialized knowledge about, prison conditions and overuse of force by police or correctional officers, or any subject related to crime and punishment, including improvements proposed or realized. Human Rights Demand channel at Blogtalkradio hosts guests who speak about issues of legal, social, and economic justice in the USA. No consideration is given to the guests' race or socioeconomic status; everyone is welcome. To arrange a radio interview, please contact Mary Neal, also known as MaryLovesJustice, at (678)531.0262 or (571)335-1741, or email If there is no response within 48 hours, please try again.

We are called to be human rights advocates (Proverbs 31:8-9).

JESUS CHRIST is the world's greatest human rights advocate and my personal Lord and Savior. He is against capital punishment (Psalm 102:19-20), prisoner torture (Heb. 13:3), victimizing people (Matt. 25:40), avoidable wars (Rom. 12:18 ), all forms of discrimination (Gal. 3:28 ), and apathy about human suffering, which is inexcusable (Prov. 31:8).

Whether or not you are a Christian, the world would improve if each of us would imitate Christ. Blessings to you.
